  I think I put my problem the wrong way. In dbase12 I found a folder /DBE and did the dbe admin correctly.

Then I fount a folder called RUNTIME. It opened a few files including one that reads PLusRun as a application file. I decided that must be the file to install the runtime. This is where I got stuck. It starts running for few seconds and then stops.

I am positive that is the correct thing I tried to do. Sorry if I where not clear on the problem. All I need to do is get theis RUNTIME to work.
